#1 Videography - Question

Post by Car-Nut » Thu Feb 26, 2009 10:53 am

Im looking to upgrade my Video camera to a smaller, lighter one even though this is one only 2yrs old



Canon MVX3i



This beastie uses Mini DV Cassettes



How do I copy the data off the cassettes on to my PC so I can still play the recordings or is there cheap cassette player that will plug into the TV to play the mini cassettes??



All help appreciated

Did your Canon not come with a pc software cd for the purpose you require. I have a 3 year old sony mini dv which came with software and a cable which plugged into a socket on my Dell pc labelled "1394" which is called I-Link. From memory I also had a cable which went to usb as well.
If you can get a suitable cable to fit your pc and camera, "windows xp professional" includes software to transfer video. Or software like Roxio Easy Media Creator can do it.
